This resource is designed to give teachers the tools to work with children to express and communicate their feelings about this transition through discussion, images, movements and sound.

A positive primary to secondary transition has been identified as a vital part of determining a young person’s development and lessens the risk of falling behind academically or dropping out of school.

The Moving Up Website contains four activities. At the end of the activities children should have:

  • Increased confidence about their individual strengths and talents
  • A better understanding of what is positive about secondary school
  • Recognised and shared different emotions and developed ideas about how to represent these visually and through movement and sound.
  • Developed group-work skills such as communicating individual ideas, compromise and group decision-making.
